The Ebola outbreak has made international news, and all the information can be a little overwhelming. Thankfully, the CDC’s website is thorough, informative, and a great source for travelers.
The CDC is warning travelers to “avoid non essential travel’ to Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone as well as alerting travelers to “practice enhanced precautions in Democratic Republic of the Congo.” They are also offering advice to students, universities, and humanitarian workers as well as providing guidance for airlines and offering free posters in the form of a PDF to any country. You’ll also find the health advisory for the public as well as advice for airline workers, i.e. exit screening protocol, and other print resources.
The CDC is taking this outbreak very seriously which means you should too.

Hello. I’m Brittany, and I like to travel. I enjoy sharing photos and telling stories about the places I’ve been and the experiences I’ve had. After graduating college, I backpacked Europe alone. Some would say I’m a bold traveler, but I feel like I’m just getting started. I tend to attract colorful situations, so I hope you enjoy what you read!

Writer and Blogger Brittany Lucero studied both PR and Fine Art and graduated with honors at Reinhardt university. Upon completion of her certifications, and after saving funds earned from nanny and restaurant jobs, she took two months to travel Europe alone. Since then, Brittany has made her way to several countries, including Thailand, Iceland, Japan, and recently, Ireland. Through her experiences traveling, she discovered another passion of hers: whiskey-making. From the Bourbon Trail to Japan, she's explored this subject, and currently wears many hats in her role at a local, organic distillery in Chicago while still finding time to travel- of course.
